    Alternative to ftp programs, but just as effective

    I don't know about you guys but I personally never had any luck with ftp'ing

    download simpleserver from analogx

    http://www.analogx.com/contents/down...work/sswww.htm


    1) Download and install from the link above
    2) Make a folder on your desktop and call it Server (this is just for personal organization)
    3) Put the files you want to upload in the server folder
    4) Make an html file that points to the file you want to upload
    i.e if you have a game put:
    <a href="game.exe">Click to download my game</a>
    (that is what is in my html file)

    5) Start simple server, select the html file from the middle button, press start, and voila, it works!



    Tell me what you guys think

    well i've tried other ftp programs that didn't want to work and weren't nearly as easy to use

    again, I tried cuteftp and the install program didn't do anything...lol...I downloaded it about four times and it didn't work

    I was thinking about setting up an ftp site, dont even know if I would use it much, but I thought it would be cool.
